I am always quick to self evaluate and decide that I haven't accomplished enough this month or this week. It is a personal flaw. I am my toughest evaluator. It is too easy to want more out of yourself and not put the time in to feed the machine. Every month, take stock in your activities. Review your priorities. Make sure the "things" you are doing every day are still important to you. Look at your goals every month, see how you did. Be honest with yourself and do your best. Be your own evaluator.
I have been sick this week, sick enough to not go to the studio or be on the phone, so pretty sick. I actually took medicine! Having that couch time self inflicted reminded me that I need to spend more time taking care of me. You know, making the plan for the day to start with something for me. It is funny to me how quickly I forget that promise I made to myself after breast cancer. I am going to take care of me! I say with conviction! I say it every day but rarely do I do it. Being thankful for my health is a way I count blessings. I also stop and look around at the other things I am thankful for. I have an amazing husband, great family, awesome business. I've got it pretty darn good.
Be fair but firm with yourself and your dreams. Just don't forget to be thankful and hey, be nice to yourself!
